Ledbury Letterpress combines the inspiration and designs of Rebecca Jones with a lot of printing help and support from the Master Printer, Martin Clark.
If you are local to Herefordshire you may well have heard of Tilley’s, an amazing letterpress printing workshop in Ledbury – this is where the Ledbury Letterpress magic happens – we print all cards and stationery here.
Tilley’s Letterpress Printing was established in its present location in 1875. Martin Clark, the current proprietor, began his five year apprenticeship at the age of 15, going on to achieve his status as Master Printer. During his career he has maintained the traditional skills and craftsmanship of the Letterpress Printer. We handprint our wonderful cards and paper goods on his Heidleberg Plantens printer. Tilley printing may well be the only remaining “jobbing Letterpress printers” still housed in its original premises. It is this combination of antique and fresh, intricate and bold that is at the heart of Ledbury Letterpress.
Established in 2016, Ledbury Letterpress is a small venture growing gently and organically as Rebecca juggles the fledgling company with existing commitments, but please watch this space – hopes and dreams are high and this small range is just the beginning …!
